Top TEFL Certification Organization by Go Abroad

Íbero TEFL Certification Training Center in Buenos Aires, Argentina has been named top TEFL Organization in 2015 by Go Abroad

Top TEFL Certification Organization by Go Abroad: USA, February 6th, 2016- Worldwide top website for travelers Go Abroad has recently named Íbero TEFL www.iberotefl.com top organization to study the TEFL course in Buenos Aires in 2015. Reviewed by a high rate of happy ex participants, this TEFL course in Buenos Aires has received fantastic feedback in 2015.

https://www.goabroad.com/articles/announcing-goabroad-s-top-rated-organizations-programs-of-2015

The Íbero TEFL certification course in Buenos Aires offers a 4-week in-house course, 120-hour total training with all the necessary theory and practice in order to become an effective English teacher. It is of supreme importance that all participants can show a real commitment to the course as it is short but intense and that they can also show a high level of motivation. These are key facts in order to be able to get a full-time job as an English Teacher in Buenos Aires. Teachers wanting to teach fewer hours to learn in Spanish in the beginning can opt to do so as well.

“We have had lots of receptive and positive feedback from our course and this is due to hard work and dedication. I am committed to having all our graduates busy working after the course and this is reflected in their opinions after the course”, says Director Florencia Bozzano, who has been running the

Íbero TEFL course at her school in Buenos Aires since 2008.

Top TEFL Certification Organization by Go Abroad: This complete program also offers the possibility of learning Spanish and also to stay at the accommodation offered by the school, either in a shared apartments or homestay for people looking to improve their Spanish even faster. Florencia has also written a complete line of Spanish learning books for all levels of fluency, which are free to all international students from Íbero. The school also offers the possibility of studying Spanish at a lower rate, for TEFL students.

“The course was helpful in preparing me about what to expect as an English Teacher in Buenos Aires. The program also helped facilitate interviews with language institutes and job opportunities. My practice teaching sessions were helpful because they exposed me to real English classes and gave me the opportunity to practice. My instructor was great and had lots of experience teaching English in Buenos Aires. She was very knowledgeable and taught me a lot!”, says Chiara May Padovani from Canada who has completed the TEFL course on October 9th, 2014, after 4 weeks of intensive classes and practice sessions.

I completed my TEFL course at Íbero on May 29th, 2015. I found the TEFL course to be a very helpful crash course in what I should expect from teaching English. At first, I thought that the course would mainly revolve around reviewing the English grammar rules that I haven’t really paid attention to since primary and secondary school. The course did focus on this for one week, with a particular emphasis on some of the most useful ways to explain things. The TEFL book by Íbero was great. I have used the coursework to help me compare and contrast verb tenses, as well as teach the different ways the English language makes use of Gerunds (-ing words). More than the grammar however, the most practical benefits gained from the course include categorizing the students’ existing knowledge base into levels, knowing what materials are appropriate to learn at each one of these levels, and how handle classroom dynamics in which students vary in understanding or fluency. No doubt that the practice sessions were helpful. They are useful because prior to the practice sessions, I spent a lot of time in a classroom discussing the theory and the best practices. It was good to approach it from the theoretical side, but actually being in a classroom with a language learner for an hour helped me see some of the struggles in person. Exposure to this environment brought things to my attention and the subsequent discussions with my instructor helped to make what I was learning in class more applicable to the real-world teaching experience. The job placement was very useful. By providing contacts to the various language institutions I was able to find enough teaching hours to break even on expenses. However, getting hired by the companies and arranging schedules are two different things. As you are aware, there are a lot of factors that must be arranged before the first day of class even starts such as the day and time and location. If in the beginning you aren’t careful when scrambling for enough hours, you run the risk of making commitments that pull you all around town. Thanks again for everything, Jim Clark, USA

 

Terminé mi curso TEFL el 29 de marzo de 2016. Fue genial la experiencia aquí. Al inicio tenía poco miedo de verdad es que no sabía nada de la escuela y leí cosas negativas… desde primer momento que entré a esta atmosfera increíble entendí que de verdad la situación era al revés! Mi profe aquí y la directora sólo trataron que yo tengo la mejor experiencia! El curso fue genial – tanta mucho trabajo la profe puso para ayudar nos, para apoyarnos con cualquier pregunta que tuvimos.. ahora  me siento mucho más listo para enseñar inglés. La directora me ayudó mucho también.. la cosa más importante es que se preocupa de ti! Se preocupa de ti no solo si estás pagando por el curso, pero se preocupa si te gusta el curso, si te vas a encontrar trabajo después. Es una chica genial.. y este todo me hizo sentir muy bien y satisfecho. Son personas que quieren de verdad a ayudarte nomás! Ivan Loginov, Russia.

Tips to take into account when choosing a tefl course

Tips to take into account when choosing a tefl course: Argentina is Latin America’s largest Spanish speaking country, with the capital of Buenos Aires being the largest city in the country. This bustling city has a lucrative job market because business professionals are flocking here for better job opportunities; as the economy climbs, English is becoming more of a necessity for international business. This means the demand for TEFL certified teachers is on the rise, not only in the capital, but across the country. This is one of the many reasons Buenos Aires is the perfect place to become TEFL certified. Furthermore you have a better chance of finding a good job and making connections in the city if you attend a school that is accredited and well-known like Íbero TEFL.

Some tips to take into account when choosing a TEFL course in Buenos Aires (and Don’t Get Ripped Off)

We have been running the TEFL certification program at Íbero for the past nine years however you may be considering other options when choosing your TEFL course in Buenos Aires. Here you have some steps to take into consideration when choosing the appropriate TEFL class.

1-Research

Research TEFL courses worldwide It is worth to put in the time to research matters like TEFL certification and job markets. Check out blogs, reviews and articles.

2-Speak with TEFL schools and ask as many questions as possible

An excellent TEFL Certification school will employ a trained professional admissions staff who can provide answers for TEFL programs questions

Ask about

  • TEFL courses;
  • Job placement assistance; free or not?
  • Your opportunity to obtain a paid teaching position based on your skills, citizenship, age, educational level, gender, etc.
  • Official training hours and accreditation : How many hours of training does your TEFL course have (international standard is at least 100 hours) and is your TEFL course accredited (and if so, then by whom)?
  • Teaching practice sessions: Do your courses incorporate live practice teaching with real ESL students (not role-playing with other teachers-in-training)? Note that the majority of schools around the world hiring English teachers do not recognize TEFL courses that do not incorporate at least 6-20 hours of real practice sessions, avoid getting ripped off on your TEFL certification

 

Tips to take into account when choosing a tefl course: Instructors: Who will teach my TEFL course? If you want to become a professional English teacher, should you accept anything less than top-level instruction from experienced professors with advanced degrees. It does not matter if the professor is from Argentina or from the US, the instructor has to have experience teaching English and to deliver effective T EFL classes.

 

Tips to take into account when choosing a tefl course : How and where will you help me find a job and how much will that cost in addition to my course tuition?  Are there “extra” costs involved in this? Here at Íbero TEFL of course we offer job placement at no additional cost.

Where in the world can you teach abroad with your TEFL certification?  The majority of language schools worldwide require a professional level course of 100 of classwork and 6 hours of practicum.  A way to find out is simply go to an ESL board, contact a school in a country and ask what that employer requires.

Are there any hidden costs such as book fees, registration fees, or fees for job placement assistance? When considering international courses, be sure to ask about housing costs and extra features such as language classes and cultural activities .Of course here at Íbero TEFL we do not charge an application fee and job placement is free of charge.

What is a realistic timeline for getting my TEFL/TESOL certification, getting hired and going abroad to teach English abroad?  Is it a four-week, in-person class?  Of course here at Íbero TEFL School we connect you with language schools and companies and you will start working right after your TEFL course.

 Tips to take into account when choosing a tefl course: If you can’t get proper answers to these sorts of questions, then you probably need to move on and look for another TEFL school.

Teaching English Abroad in Buenos Aires 2017/2018

Teaching English Abroad in Buenos Aires: When considering Teaching English Abroad, Buenos Aries is one of the most captivating cities in Latin America. From its resemblance to the cities of Europe to its multicultural diversity, Buenos Aries is a wonderful city and an experience that shouldn’t be missed. As the 5th largest consumer of wine in the world, Argentina is overflowing with excellent wine available at current reasonable prices.

Teaching English Abroad in Buenos Aires, Teaching English Levels

When teaching English, eight levels are commonly used to categorize language ability:

  1. Absolute/False Beginner
  2. Beginner
  3. High-Beginner
  4. Low-Intermediate
  5. Intermediate
  6. High-Intermediate
  7. Advanced
  8. High-Advanced

Beginner Students:

Beginners are often too shy to speak. As a result, teachers should be sure to build a rapport with the students so that they feel the confidence to begin speaking. Try to encourage students as much as possible, even if they make many mistakes. Always give constructive criticism with positive reinforcement. Lesson plans for beginners should be made interesting, diverse, and visual. Set a schedule that is flexible in case the student is quicker or slower than expected. Additionally, communication may be solely through body language if the teacher does not speak the student’s language. Try to have an English dictionary on hand in addition to planning “absolute beginner” activities. DO NOT treat adult beginners like children.

Intermediate Students:

Like beginner students, intermediate students may feel shy when speaking the target language. Be sure to work just as hard at building a rapport with such students. Knowing more of the language, intermediate students respond well to learning personal information about the teacher. Always commend intermediate students for a job well done. Lesson plans for intermediate students can be more difficult, but also more fun and creative. Intermediate learners are often more up to a challenge. They also respond well to visuals, literature, audio, and writing assignments. Get students involved as the topics will be more difficult. Give adult learners topics they can relate to. DO NOT treat adult intermediates like children.

Advanced Students:

Adult learners are the easiest to get to know as they are no longer shy about speaking. As a result, it is easier to build a rapport with such students. They have the ability to speak generally on most topics as they have a strong grasp of the language. There should be a lot of review using written and spoken language. Objective should be more flexible and one should take note that advanced students will move through material more quickly. Many advanced students are interested in learning about a specific field. As such, they can be taught specific courses in English. There is a freedom in planning lessons with advanced students that you would not find in intermediate or advanced lessons. Advanced learners are usually 17 and up.

Teaching Adults—things to consider

  1. Diversity is more likely in the classroom
  2. Adults like knowledgeable, positive, and enthusiastic teachers
  3. Adults need a comfortable and secure environment
  4. Repetition is key
  5. Adults learn with questions and answers
  6. Real life context—adults prefer real-life situations

Teaching Children—things to consider

  1. Short attention span
  2. Using objects for application of knowledge
  3. Playfulness
  4. Phonetics (children are able to mimic sounds more easily than adults)

Teaching Abroad in Buenos Aires, Sample Lesson Plan

Student Name: Tatianna Herrera (8)

Level: Kids 2

Objective: To review “family member” vocabulary that she should have already touched upon. Additionally, Tatianna is a quiet student so I hoped get her speaking more this class. By the end of the class, I wanted her to confidently use this vocabulary.

The Class: To introduce the topic of family to Tatianna, I gave her to option of using colored pencils or Play-doh—she chose the Play-doh. I then instructed her to use the Play-doh to make her family. While she was doing so, I would ask “Who is this?” She would answer, “my mom/dad/brother/sister” in English. I made my own family out of Play-doh as well so that she did not feel as though I was watching her every move. We then worked on a worksheet in which she had to label members of an extended family tree. I gave her a filled-out family tree worksheet to use if she got confused. She asked to keep the worksheets at the end of the lesson because she found it helpful. It also helped her learn how to read a family tree. This took up the rest of the hour.

Resources needed: Play-doh or colored pencils, worksheets (or the ability to draw a family tree), and a cheat-sheet of the family tree if the vocabulary is new to students and they need practice learning to read family trees.

How is this activity appropriate for a Kids 2 student?

Tatianna got practice saying sentences such as “This is my mom” and “This is me” without having to delve into complicated grammar. She also was able to practice reading a family tree and utilizing new vocab. The Play-doh was a hands-on activity that would keep an 8-year-old content for the amount of time it was used. I made sure to play with the Play-doh too, or look busy while she was working on the worksheet so she did not get shy again. Much positive reinforcement was utilized.

Improvements: If time is short, use colored pencils instead of Play-doh as it takes children a while to make their family using it.

What does this tell us about teaching family vocabulary?

When teaching family vocabulary—especially to children—its best to reference their own family members. This gives them something to focus on, as well an interest in the subject as it pertains to them.

Teaching English as a Foreign Language – TEFL in Buenos Aires

0
Teaching English as a Foreign Language

Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) in Buenos Aires refers to teaching the English language to students with different first languages, in the case of Buenos Aires, with native Spanish speakers. TEFL occurs more often privately, at a language school or with a tutor. TEFL can also take place in an English-speaking country for people who have immigrated there (either temporarily for school or work, or permanently) as in the United States or in the UK. TEFL teachers may be native or non-native speakers of English. You can take your TEFL course in Buenos Aires without being a native English speaker. The most important part of the TEFL class is Buenos Aires is connected to Lesson Planning.

Lesson Planning

When taking the TEFL class in Buenos Aires, Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL), a teacher must create a lesson plan for every class/student they teach—this allows for organized and effective English lessons. A lesson plan also allows a teacher to create a personal teaching objective. Lesson plans can outline a day, a week, a month, or even a year.

When creating a lesson plan, a teacher must take into account:

  • Who am I teaching?
  • What are their needs?
  • What are their interests?
  • Am I teaching one-on-one or in a group?
  • How much needs to be covered in the time given?
  • What is the age/gender of my students?
  • What has been covered so far?
  • What objectives need to be met?

In the beginning, lesson planning takes a lot of preparation. However, once you get to know your students and the skill of lesson planning, the time needed to create an effective plan will dramatically decrease.

The first day of class is critical and should be handled differently depending on whether or not it is a group class or an individual class…

Group Classes:

Because you won’t know much about your students on the first day, it’s important to have an introduction planned, as well as a variety of “ice-breaker” activities. Be sure to take many notes on your first day in order to create student profiles. This will allow you to create more effective lesson plans for upcoming classes. Explain your objectives for the course so that your students know what to expect.

Individual Classes:

The first day of an individual class can be more stressful for the student than in a group class as the student will be the sole focus of the teacher’s attention. Like in a group lesson, be sure to include ice-breaking activities in order to help the student relax. Rapport is key. By the end of the class, the teacher should have an extensive student profile finished and ready to contribute to the creation of future lesson plans.

Lesson plans for group and individual classes will also differ…

Group Classes:

Group lessons will take more time to teach or practice as some students will work slower than others. Be sure to create lessons that will appeal to many different types of learners. Students will learn differently and it’s important to try and accommodate as many students as possible. Group work is recommended. With group lessons, you are more likely to stick to a long-term lesson plan or curriculum.

Individual Classes:

Always have extra material planned for an individual lesson as it is possible to move through the lesson plan much more quickly than originally thought. You don’t have to worry about using as many learning methods as possible, as all lesson plans can be tailored to the student. You can set higher objectives for an individual student than a group lesson. There is also more opportunity to try new things or change future lesson plans.

For both individual and group classed, create a routine so that your students know what to expect next.

Teaching English in South America

Teaching English in South America

Teaching English in South America: South America is an incredibly beautiful and diverse continent, but one that is often blighted by media reports of social divides, corruption, among other things. For my first time living and working in Latin America, Argentina was a great introduction to the continent. Getting used to things such as the different Spanish accent and punctuality, or the lack of it, is difficult at first, but Buenos Aires is a developed, cosmopolitan city with fine bars, restaurants and museums to help you settle and the city is huge and wonderful. Teaching in South America tends to be very different to what we’re accustomed to in the UK. With a TEFL course, CELTA or equivalent, English Teaching Jobs (ESL Jobs) are generally available teaching adults in language institutes or companies in the city center.

Teaching English in South America, Grammar in Context

The principle elements of a sentence are:

  1. Subject
  2. Verbs and Verb Phrases
  3. Direct and Indirect Objects
  4. Complements with Verbs that express feeling, appearing, being and seeming
  5. Modifiers
  6. Clauses
  7. Phrases

The parts of a speech that form a sentence are:

  1. Nouns and Nominals (infinitives, gerunds, ect.)
  2. Articles
  3. Verbs
  4. Pronouns
  5. Adjectives
  6. Adverbs
  7. Prepositions
  8. Conjunctions
  9. Interjections

Labels for sentence types are:

  1. Simple
  2. Compound
  3. Complex
  4. Basic & variations on basic sentence patterns

Word usage or lexicon is also used:

  1. Idiomatic constructions
  2. Formulaic expressions
  3. Use of phrases within sentences

What to take into account in order to teach English effectively in South America?

  • Teach English grammar using direct instruction in English as a second or foreign language instruction. To do so, one should motivate students by demonstrating how the sentence structures can be used in real-life communication, drill the sentence structures with the students, and engage students using a variety of activities and group work.
  • To teach sentence and sentence structure, begin with a simple sentence (José lost his book) and expand upon it, slowly making the sentence more complex (José was playing on the swings at the playground when he lost his math book. José also lost his science homework because it was in his math book).
  • Another way to teach sentence structure is to focus on specific points of English language and grammar, such as relative clauses and negatives, individually and at different times.
  • Sentence Recombination is another effective way to teach sentence structure, as well as paragraph structure, punctuation, transition, coherence, and parts of speech. It also forces students to use their critical thinking skills.
  • Give English speaking/writing practices context. For example, role play different scenarios that would require a specific sentence structure.

Obviously a big attraction to living abroad and Teaching English in South America is the opportunity to travel. Depending where you are in Latin America, holidays can be up to three months, according to the academic year of classes, as in Chile and Argentina.

cameron-TEFL-2017The school was a perfect setting. Free tea and coffee as well as a great location made for a wonderful setting. The TEFL course was brilliant and will be very helpful, not only Teaching English in Buenos Aires. I will continue to use the skills I have acquired in all facets of the language, especially my newfound confidence in organizational skills. Our Professor Carolina was organized, entertaining, prepared, experienced and extremely knowledgeable. I think she cared a lot about her students and took the time to get to know us. The lessons flowed well and all of us have improved greatly thanks to Carolina. She adapted the lessons very well to how the group was feeling or acting on a certain day. The observations were useful in picking out the good and bad parts of other teacher´s lessons. Discussing the lessons in class afterwards also allowed me more chance to incorporate my observations into my own teaching. The practice lessons were crucial in my development as a TEFL Teacher. Very well organized by Íbero in order to provide maximum exposure to the world of teaching. Cameron Dennis, London, England.

First things first, the only way to learn to speak a language, is by actually speaking. And this is the first step to Working in South America, getting to start being familiar with the Spanish language. During your class if you have a question ask in Spanish, when you don´t know how to pronounce a word ask in Spanish, always use the small amount of Spanish you have to engage in speaking. You can study for years, and master all of the grammar rules, but unless you actually practice speaking, you will never speak well. When you are practicing speaking, remember to do it out loud, at normal conversational volume. Make sure you’re comfortable with the fundamentals of the language before tackling the more advanced stuff. It will take you a while to get used to the pronunciation and spelling of a new language, but without a solid understanding of these, you’ll find it very difficult to learn more. Go over each lesson several times, perhaps once in the morning, once in the evening and once several days later. Give your brain time to digest the material, but make sure the gaps between periods of study are not too long, i.e. more than a few weeks, or you’ll forget most of what you’re trying to learn. Make sure you have got to grips with the contents of one lesson before moving on to the next.

I would definitely recommend both the school and the course. Olivia Litchfield, UK

The teacher was great.  Friendly, patient and approachable.  Ready to help and to reassure us we are doing ok. The practice teaching sessions were definitely very useful.

Challenging your students correctly will help them feel comfortable with learning a new language. The text highlights which grammar levels should be taught to which level. Although the TEFL course gives a description of various words used in grammar it’s best not to just read the text off, your student will not learn from this. In order to properly explain you have to show your students and have them show you so you know they have understood.

The use of the gerund varies and can be taught at different levels through simplistic or complex examples. A gerund comes in all shapes and forms; used as a noun to describe activities “He teaches reading.”, compound nouns “a swimming pool”, as a compliment of a sentence “The part of my job I hate most is reading books.”, subject of a sentence “Shopping makes her go crazy.”, after prepositions “Thank you for loving me.”, used after other verbs “I try to avoid running.”, after expressions “It’s not worth going now.” It is important to start simply when explaining gerunds, first focusing on the “ing” ending (swimming) and how the gerund is used with infinitives (I like swimming, I like to swim). An exception to this rule is pairing a gerund with “want”, you can’t replace a gerund with an infinitive (I want to swim, I want swimming). Is it important to explain that not all words ending in “ing” are gerunds, for example “I was swimming yesterday”, in this example swimming is linked to the verb “was” making it a verb phrase. Another important part of gerunds is the fixed versus non- time fixed verb form, for example “I started swimming” doesn’t have a fixed ending therefore it is not gerund but a continuous verb form.

Phrasal verbs are another important part of English and therefore it is essential if you would like to become an English Teacher Abroad and can be very tricky for non-native speakers due to the various meanings. Numerous verbs in English are followed by an adverb or preposition, this second word changes the meaning. Some example of phrasal verbs are; drop off, drop out, make up, and look out. Phrasal verbs are tricky to use in conversation for non-native speakers, therefore it’s best to put phrasal verbs in context to help increase understanding of the word and to know when to use it. An activity for students to do is to read a text and to underline all the phrasal verbs and explain the meaning of them.

For example, “in” when talking about months, years and periods of time, use “at” when talking about a certain time and use “on” when talking about days of the week and specific calendar days.
